The Top Uses for Spin Prize Wheels

Spin prize wheels have been around for years and for good reason:  they are an easy and safe way to have fun!  Today’s prize wheels aren’t just built for game shows, however, they are designed to help motivate employees, drum up excitement at events, or to create enthusiasm and raise money at a fundraiser or charity event.  They are popular choices for these and other types of events because they are easy to set up and transport from place to place, and they are always guaranteed to provide tons of fun no matter where you take them.

One of the most popular ways to use spin prize wheels is for school fundraisers.  Students can sell tickets to other students, parents and members of the community to “win” a spin, and by getting local businesses to donate the prizes, all the money they earn can be put back into school programs.  It’s a great way to earn money for band trips, new sports equipment and special events.  Spin prize wheels are also great for charity events, auctions, bingo nights and other events where big groups need to be entertained and where there is the chance to make some money for a good cause.

Prize wheels are also often used at sales events and at trade shows, where everyone is always vying to have the latest and greatest marketing materials and promo items.  Nothing can make a crowd gather faster than a brightly light prize wheel and the chance to win some great prizes.  Having a few high-ticket items, such as an iPad or a big gift card, is just one way to increase enthusiasm at your event and is an easy way to get some valuable exposure for your business.

No matter how you use your prize, you can rest assured that it will be something that everyone can enjoy.  Prize wheels don’t require any special skills or specific educational level to play and they can be enjoyed by people of all ages, shapes and sizes.

Setting up and transporting a trade show prize wheel is just as easy as setting up any other type of display.  You can get a prize wheel that sets up with a wall mount and background, or one that works with a durable floor stand.  Add in a heavy-duty case for easy transport and installation at the trade show, and you’ll be ready to go.

It couldn’t easier to start injecting energy into your trade show appearances than by using a prize wheel to help people learn about your business while giving them the chance to win great prizes.  As an added bonus, when you go with something that is customized with your company logo, you’ll have something that is even more effective and more impactful on those who come to visit your booth.  It’s win-win for you and your visitors and is something that you’ll surely appreciate over time.
